Wilfredo's story

Wilfredo is a hard-working 22 year old young man. He lives in his mother-in-law’s house with his life partner, 23 year old Mireya.

For four years he has been making all kinds of metallic structures like doors and windows, among other things. The business belongs to his mother-in-law. When Wilfredo started the relationship with his life partner, he also joined the business. He came to enjoy it a lot because he has great ability for this work. Also, it is a family business. He works alongside his father-in-law and all of the family, which gives him great satisfaction because everyone does their part to get ahead.

He plans to contribute with the family in addition to generating more income. That is why he is planning to expand the business. He wants to buy a soldering machine to start his own business.

This is Wilfredo’s first loan with MFP. He promises to be very punctual in making all of his payments. He will use the money from the loan to buy a soldering machine to help with the income from the family business. Also, he is thinking of becoming independent.
